Altered Routine

Yusi Zang, Andre Franco

7–24 Aug 2019

Franco + Zang's work focuses on the first few minutes when the viewer enters a space. Mirroring the gallery architecture to induce a heightened moment of awareness by disorienting and disrupting the viewer’s expectations of the space.

An enquiry into the relationship between humans and the spaces they inhabit, our work reflects on the human encounter with the environment explored through altering the architecture of the gallery. We also aim to alter the internal architecture of the beholder’s encounter.

Our work seeks to address the superficial relationships between humans and spaces — visiting and leaving, the difficulty of connecting and the lack of attention — To add a subtle energy and dynamism to the apparent inertness of the architecture, to “make the real, real again” in Hal Foster’s terms. We aim to make the gallery a felt space, to be comprehended anew, and to activate the aesthetic possibilities inherent in the everyday experience of attending a space.

This program takes place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded - this land is stolen land. We pay respects to Wurundjeri Elders, past, present and emerging, to the Elders from other communities and to any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders who might encounter or participate in the program.
